Here is my write-up on running 37s:

Update:

The PSC hydro assist steering is working well both on and offroad. I bought the Extreme Duty version.

Love my new Poly Performance sliders. (I ended up with a small amount of body damage on my passenger rear rocker when the stock Rubi rails flexed while coming down on a large boulder. So, we pulled the dent enough to install the Poly sliders.)

Stretching the rear by 0.75" caused clearance problems between the swaybar links and the rear axle tube. So, I moved the rear swaybar back on the frame by one bolt hole and used a spacer so the swaybar would clear my Woods deep storage trunk.

Moving the swaybar back caused clearance problems with the swaybar link bolts and my hard brake lines. So, my hard brake lines now run along the top of the frame.

I installed some narrow Xenons for a more finished look and to deflect some mud.

The joints in my stock draglink are shot. So I ordered a Currie drag link. It is very beefy. Will post pics after I install it.

Pre-Xenons:






Post-Xenons (and about $20 of quarters at the car wash):

Man I would of thought that 40s would of bent some part of the D44 up front for sure, especially when three-wheeling aross the crack at MOab. I too am curious of the breaking point of these axles. I do miss your Black Rock 909 wheels though.

The 909s will go back on for winter.

I expect that the axles will last a while.

For the front axle:

Dynatrac ball joints.
Off Road Evolution C-gussets and lower control arm skids.
RSE/Mt. Logan Offroad sleeves.
Poly Performance truss
Chromoly axle shafts.
5.13 gears with a 6 speed and 4:1 transfer case.

and...a technical approach to wheeling without much wheel spin (at least with the 40s on).

The rear has chromoly axle shafts with the 5.13s.

throttle control will go a looooong way in regards to axle longevity.

Hey Planman! Nice Rig!

Two Questions
1. Do the poly performance sliders cover the body mounts
2. Whats the overall height of your rig ( for clearance in parking garages,etc )

Thanks.

Yes, the Poly sliders cover and protect the body mounts.

The top of the soft top is about 79" and the top of the radio antenna is 83".

So, 84" parking garages are no problem. I could always get a stubby after-market radio antenna if needed.

I remove the CB antenna for daily driving.

Yeah. Not much use for my rear view mirror.
